Abstract This article describes a model for the treatment of emotional abuse to help clients heal from past relationships and avoid recidivism. It utilizes a process where clients work with a therapist, as well as with a group of other clients, to achieve an emotional sense of direction in love, friendship, and work. Using the concept of an "artist-guide" and an InnerSelf Dialogue technique this model helps clients understand the five cycles of emotional abuse, and how the cycles have impacted them. It is a model that relies heavily on group psychotherapy, family life education, and the integration of individual, conjoint, and family therapy, as indicated. It also works well with a broad spectrum of psychological frailties, including high functioning borderline personalities.
